MOORPARK, Cal. (WFRV) — Here’s something you don’t see every day – a truck driver in California was pulled over after a motorcycle officer noticed a fake license plate on the truck. 

Local 5’s sister station in Los Angeles, CBS 2, reports the homemade plate, attached to a tractor-trailer, was obviously fake. 

As seen above, the plate was black with the number 9F30815 under the word “Califas,” a Chicano nickname for California. 

Ventura County sheriff’s officials say a motorcycle office pulled over the driver, who appeared to be under the influence of drugs. He was arrested on suspicion of DUI, possession of methamphetamine and being an unlicensed driver. Officials say the man, who was not identified, also had an active warrant for his arrest.

The tractor-trailer was towed from the scene because it was unsafe for driving, authorities said.
